Is Byron Katie’s work useful?

Byron Katie’s The Work is a very powerful and effective method for helping people “get out of their story” and begin to really “see” what’s happening in their lives so they can do something different and change their habitual thought pattern.

Her famous “is that true?” is great as far as it goes, but I prefer, “is that accurate? is that what you really experience?” Because for me, there’s a difference between facts–the perceived experience–and Truth or Reality, which are eternal and what is happening at the spiritual level.

So, in a given interaction, if I’m caught in my story I may just say “she’s doing what she always does” rather than describe the facts, “she didn’t arrive when we expected her and I was frustrated,” and the Truth is always “she’s loving me and I’m loving her, and there’s something here for me to discover.”
